DESA® is our proprietary acronym for Digital Electroencephalogram Spectral Analysis, an EEG based neuroelectrical evaluation system developed at Harvard’s Boston Children’s Hospital. At its core is an EEG, but there are five other parts to the DESA®.
The purpose of a thorough neuroelectrical examination is to analyze the central nervous system, its input processes, and the processes and expression of information. The brain puts out micro amounts of electrical energy that can be captured and evaluated. When analyzed by an expert, the data can reveal abnormalities previously undiagnosed and/or can confirm or rule out diagnostic impressions.
